    Terrorist has eradicated from sri lanka. Why so much security for Ministers? This becomes a fashion now. Wasting public money just for show off

    Minan Monday, 04 October 2010 10:51 AM

    They are not worried because its not their money, public of this country will have to bear the bill

    irsh Monday, 04 October 2010 10:54 AM

    Bottom Line is.... Most of us our suffering without Water!!!

    Dheen Monday, 04 October 2010 11:08 AM

    It looks like that the high ranking officer's vehicle has tried a frog leap.

    Concerned Monday, 04 October 2010 08:02 AM

    Its called the "Defender" culture!

    imran Monday, 04 October 2010 08:10 AM

    it is all SF's fault.

    Jix Monday, 04 October 2010 08:12 AM

    It’s really infuriating to still see these monkeys on four feels driving so dangerously at the cost of the public’s money!!! This nonsense has to stop!!!

    Serenity Monday, 04 October 2010 08:12 AM

    This time its collided with a water supply line. Hope next time it doesn't collide with civilians. The way they drive on the road is ridiculous.

    Hash Monday, 04 October 2010 08:17 AM

    Speed Thrills, but it kills

    Sanje Monday, 04 October 2010 08:19 AM

    Better to reveal this "HIGH OFFICIAL"

    law of nature in action.

    Muraly Monday, 04 October 2010 08:20 AM

    Defende "Submarine" new model for high ranking government official.

    naz Monday, 04 October 2010 08:21 AM

    What happened to the driver and more importantly to the official?

    TMA Monday, 04 October 2010 11:40 AM

    MayB there was an SF poster on the pipeline

    Nalin Pradeep Monday, 04 October 2010 08:23 AM

    High ranking means "the people fly on roads surrounding with Defenders". Now the poor public has to bear this damage too.

    Hemantha Tuesday, 05 October 2010 02:37 AM

    oh......where is flying gear

    Managala Monday, 04 October 2010 11:43 AM

    reckless driving caused a big loss..

    lakmal Monday, 04 October 2010 08:27 AM

    OHHH TARGET MISSED

    Dilan Monday, 04 October 2010 08:27 AM

    This is what happens when people think Defenders rule the road. Good for them.

    Travis Monday, 04 October 2010 08:28 AM

    Wasting public wealth with public wealth. Absolutely no accountability.

    Priyantha Tuesday, 05 October 2010 02:48 AM

    GOD has already started treatments ........

    Suresh Monday, 04 October 2010 08:32 AM

    As usual the general public has to suffer for the idiotic actions of these political goons!

    jim jam Monday, 04 October 2010 08:36 AM

    malithlk Monday, 04 October 2010 11:54 AM

    wonder of asia

    scrap_metal Monday, 04 October 2010 08:44 AM

    whoever is responsible should be finned and pay for the damage without using public funds...

    doctor no Monday, 04 October 2010 08:56 AM

    why it did not hit a bowser or a train.

    sam Monday, 04 October 2010 09:10 AM

    Meke 4WD Nedda?

    thilina Monday, 04 October 2010 09:12 AM

    KurtWagner Monday, 04 October 2010 09:12 AM

    wow.. nice alloy spare-wheel.

    Minister Monday, 04 October 2010 09:13 AM

    Can any one explain who spent money to buy that Defender for the VIP? The general public or himself?

    nishan Monday, 04 October 2010 09:21 AM

    To Sanje., The law is already been implemented, if this accident was done by a public. But it was not and Government official may already have new vehicle by now.

    Jix Monday, 04 October 2010 09:23 AM

    Only about 50% of the population gets sarcasm.. aparently..

    Bluff Bluff Monday, 04 October 2010 09:29 AM

    "Thun-kal dakma"

    Geronimo Monday, 04 October 2010 01:13 PM

    sc Monday, 04 October 2010 09:40 AM

    IDIOTS !!!

    Marl Monday, 04 October 2010 09:41 AM

    This is Sri Lanka buddy! That will never happen.

    ajith Monday, 04 October 2010 09:41 AM

    Who pays the damage of the water line and water??????
    Will the water board and POLICE cover up the incident?

    TOM Monday, 04 October 2010 01:56 PM

    We Didn't Pay Tax To The Government for the well being of government officials But

    Palitha Heenthotuwa Monday, 04 October 2010 10:00 AM

    Everyone and everything besides the driver of the vehicle is at fault. So the people have to repair the vehicle if not get a brand new one and foot the hospital bills of the injured.

    asoka Monday, 04 October 2010 10:04 AM

    Is the VIP safe?

    spark Monday, 04 October 2010 10:30 AM

    Where is your patriotism? Where is your love for the motherland? Where is your sinhalese kinsmanthip? These are things meant to be swiped under the carpet.
